The island of Maldives is one of the most attractive tourist spots around the world. However, the island is threatened by rising ocean levels due to climate change and is predicted to be submerged by the year 2100. To solve this problem, a new artificial Island of Hope named Hulhumalé was built by using millions of cubic meters of sand pumped from the seabed.  Long-term ambitions for Hulhumalé are envisioned as hosting up to 240,000 people in a well-designed style by the mid-2020s. This vision includes a diverse mix of quality housing, new employment opportunities plus open recreational space three times larger per person than Malé.
